Pan Fried Pork Chops in White Wine Sauce with Spinach and Beans

Mouth-watering Pork Chops are lightly fried to golden perfection and are served with a simple garlic and white wine reduction over a bed of flavorful spinach and white beans. Add a fresh lemon wedge, and dinner is served! 

Ingredients

Pork Chops and Wine Sauce:

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 center-cut pork chops, bone-in
  • Salt/Pepper , to taste
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup dry white wine*, see notes
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Spinach and Beans:

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 14.5 oz. white beans
  • 10 oz. fresh baby spinach

Instructions

Pork Chops and Wine Sauce:

  • Over medium-high heat, melt the butter in a large skillet (preferably cast iron), then add the olive oil.
  • Sprinkle both sides of the pork with salt and pepper, then dredge each side into the flour.
  • Sear each side of the pork chops until they’re a light golden brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • Remove the pork chops from the skillet for now and set aside on a plate.
  • Add the garlic to the pan and cook until fragrant, about a minute.
  • Add the white wine and cook until it is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. 
  • Add the chicken broth and pork chops back to the pan.
  • Squeeze half of the lemon over the pork chops and continue to simmer until the pork chops are a deep golden brown and cooked through, about 20 minutes. (Time varies based on thickness of the pork) – You can also put the pan in the oven at 325 for 20 minutes to finish cooking the pork that way.

Spinach + Beans:

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, then add the minced garlic and cook for about one minute.
  • Add the white beans and spinach and toss gently with a rubber spatula. Cook just 3-4 minutes, until the spinach just begins to wilt.
  • Place a bed of spinach and beans on a serving plate and top with that delicious pork! Enjoy!

Notes

  • Pinot Grigio, unoaked Chardonay, and Sauvignon Blanc are great cooking wines.
